How early should I arrive to my class at Empowered?
Please arrive no more than 10-minutes prior to the start of your scheduled class. Due to more rigorous cleaning, we may not be at the front desk to greet you, should you arrive earlier.
What should I bring and wear to an Empowered class?
Bring a positive attitude! Hydration is key so don’t forget to bring a water bottle. Touch-less water coolers are available to refill your water bottle. If you do forget to bring a bottle, we do sell bottled water in our studio. Please also bring a towel to use during class.
Regardless of whether you’re taking a strength or cycling class, we recommend wearing moisture-wicking, comfortable clothes to keep cool and dry throughout.
For strength classes, such as HIIT Strength and Combo/Cycling Core, we provide weights. For Barre and Core classes, a Bender ball is often used as are mini loop bands. Mini loop bands as well as Therabands are used in Band Camp. For all strength classes, please bring an exercise mat. Due to COVID-19, we have limited the sharing of equipment so please do bring your own. We also sell equipment onsite and via our online store.
If you’re new to indoor cycling, you may experience some discomfort with the seat. Bringing a gel seat or wearing padded bike shorts will help. Stiff-soled sneakers may be worn during class. However, for greater benefit, we recommend wearing cycling shoes. Our state of art Stages™ bikes accommodate SPD pedals. We also sell amazingly comfortable women’s TIEM Athletic cycling shoes in our studio and via our online store.
Do you provide workout towels at Empowered?
We have temporarily suspended our towel service due to COVID-19. We kindly request that you bring your own towel to use during class.
Do you have showers?
Yes, we do have two showers and typically, they are available on a first come, first served bases. However, due to COVID-19 state guidelines, we are unable to allow them to be used at this time.

We will try our best not to cancel classes or close the studio. However, for the safety of our riders and staff, we recognize that we may need to close due to inclement weather.
